    Bournemouth

    Perhaps a bit of a random thing to ask on here, but you guys nearly always come up with the goods... I'm planning a weekend away to Bournemouth and I'm not really sure where to stay.

    I may want the impossible - somewhere within walking distance of all the stuff going on in the evening but not somewhere that's mega noisy/busy. Somewhere with a sea view is obviously a bonus! - I've not been to Bournemouth since I was about 5 (22 years ago lol) so I can't remember much, and I'm sure it's changed.

    So, reccomendations for areas to stay, or even actual places? - Looking for somewhere nice rather than ultra budget but its just for 2 blokes so nothing ott!

    Thanks for the reccomendation, I just had a look and it's fully booked for the weekend I had in mind

    Is that the area to be though - i.e. is that location a good compromise for most stuff?

    We stayed at the devere royal bath. Nice hotel in the centre, overlooking the sea. We payed £59 per room per night bed and breakfast.

    Cheers, that looks very nice, sadly that's booked too! - I guess 7th-9th May is a tad short notice!

    Few decent places around Exeter road, not too far from the sea and town.

    what about a travel lodge ]Travel Lodge Bournemouth, its quite busy down here at the mo as the weather is good.

    from my drunk cocktail swilling bird... try the Royal Exeter Hotel, with so I am led to believe a fantastic cocktail bar underneath, plus the BIC is across the road.. and two mins walk into town..

    Booked as well - I guess that's the problem with such short notice! - We might have to put it off till July at this rate - although no doubt that's filling up fast in most places!

    lol, also booked! - I'm starting to think there's some random event going on that weekend that I'm too stupid to have realised - even places which looked really nasty and were expensive are booked!

    I live here so have first hand knowledge of a few places

    Try these - all close to town but not rough, mad or too expensive:

    lampeterhotel.co.uk/

    safarihotel.com/

    If you get no joy I will get a few more for you. Its busy that weekend with stags/hens etc but you should find somewhere.

    dates and numbers please?

    might book my self
